Pope Francis tells priests to pardon women who have abortions

How condescending can this ‘religious’ leader get?
Who cares about forgiveness when there is nothing to forgive? Will the Pope also issue orders to ‘forgive’ the man who didn’t wear a condom, or get it snipped, or whatever? Once again, the onus is on the woman, who, while only 50% of the equation must continue to suffer 100% of the consequences and the blame….
And, once again, the Catholic Church, along with every other form of organized religion, proves my point…organized religion sucks, it is the cause of most of the pain, guilt and war in this world, and the wars we seem to be eternally caught up in should be redirected at abolishing organized religion in all it’s forms.
Every media outlet in the West is happily showering us with photos of oppressed refugees (if it bleeds, it leads..) fighting to live, literally, and often failing. The many drownings and horrors of displaced persons from war torn areas cannot help but remind me of a similar problem around 70 years ago, in Europe, when the war-displaced wandered, helpless, searching for help from the ugliness of post war trauma…and Europe, and the West, responded…
Now, it’s above these petty concerns for the Vatican, which infamously back in the day made a deal with Hitler to ignore the plight of Jewish refugees… where was all the forgiveness then, Pope?
Instead of proselytizing about what women freely choose to, why not concentrate your pontificating energy on the refugees, the children who still live, why not spend some of those millions of Vatican-hoarded dollars to aid and assist in the situation as it stands….or is the Church just disinterested in mostly non-Christian, non-white refugees; children or otherwise?
